In Ontario, an independent agency, the Office of the Fairness Commissioner, is legally charged with making sure that regulatory bodies use licensing practices that are transparent, objective, impartial and fair. How is it actually implementing this challenging mandate?

Starting in the spring of 2011, the Commissioner is assessing the regulators’ licensing practices. To do the assessments, she and her staff use two guides, one for health professions and the other for non-health professions.

The guides, containing criteria based in law, were developed in collaboration with the regulatory bodies themselves. Twelve regulators and qualifications assessors came together in a working group to help the Office with drafting.

The purpose of the guides and of the assessment process is continuous improvement.

In this On-Demand presentation, you will hear the Commissioner and members of the working group discuss their innovative collaboration. They will speak about balancing competing views and finding common ground.
